We prioritize Senior Citizens and Youth
 

Aging for seniors can be a complex experience and we strive to change this stigma by helping older Americans celebrate the joy of living by creating a sustained and trusted relationship with support systems that allow seniors to age at home - wherever that may be.

AHH for Youth


Because their lives get challenging too! AHH want to teach beyond the classroom – give our young people opportunities to communicate and relate outside of “social media”, “texting messaging” and “video games” – YES, they CAN!

AHH Leadership
 

Founder Jarrell Marcus 


All Hands & Heart, Inc., (AHH) is the conception of founder Jarrell Marcus, after years of working with some of the most vulnerable individuals in our communities, both professionally and as a volunteer.

 

Ms. Marcus, a native Georgian, has a proven track record for serving the community in her roles as College Recruiter and Care Giver, providing supportive services for students and families; while also helping individuals gain the skills needed to successfully attain their goals.

Her interest and service continued to expand as the owner of Operation Prom’s John & Josie’s Closet – Southwest Georgia where we serve teens with free prom dresses, low cost tuxedos, school supplies and scholarships to students who are financial disadvantage, homeless, or sick.
 

As a “Daughter and Granddaughter” , my personal experience from caring for my grandmother who died in 1999 and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, to currently caring for my mom. These experiences to provide quality care for an aging parent, while juggling work and other obligations, gave true insight to the need for more affordable support services and solutions for families faced with these needs. challenges.

 

Ms. Marcus brings a powerful combination of education, experience, and exposure to All Hands & Heart (AHH).  She plans to use her unique perspective to bridge the gap of services to needs in two distinct sectors of the community, seniors and young people.

Volunteers


The AHH Youth Services Program seeks to establish “volunteer rich” partnerships, by engaging full support for our mission, from mentors in the community, high-schools, faith-based groups and service clubs. Mentoring puts caring volunteers in the lives of children in need.


All prospective mentors must successfully complete a written application, criminal background check, provide two references and undergo an interview with at least 2 Board members before being invited to join the program. Mentors and mentees are matched based on common interests, personality, and location.

 

Once enrolled, youth engage in a series of on-to-one and group activities with their mentors that are culturally sensitive and age appropriate. Currently, mentoring sessions take place via Zoom. We look forward to revisiting this policy once it is safe to do so, following the COVID-19 pandemic and with the guidance of trusted health officials.
